Orson Welles Gets Freaky With Jim Henson

April 14th, 2011 by frankie23

Once upon a time, Orson Welles taped a pilot for a talk show. This show, unfortunately, did not get picked up, but we do have an amazingly creepy little clip from it here, where he waxes all profound on Kermit & Co. while interviewing the late, great Jim Henson, and Frank “Yoda” Oz. One can only imagine how much better reality would be if this had gone through.

Star Wars via 1970s Japanese Marketing

Man, I know I say it a lot, but I just fucking love the Japanese. Especially back in the day when they didn’t give a flying fuck about American copyright. Ghetto Vader control panel, the bowing before the (interrupted) light saber battle, great jumpin’ wookiees? They’re a special people man. Damn special.
